Pizza Stone?

Sun, 02-12-2012 - 5:11pm

...well the lack of one. I was looking through recipes on cooks country and want to try thier St.Louis style pizza. They say to use a pizza stone, OR an inverted baking pan. Has anyone tried using the inverted pan? Im going to give it a shot and hope it goes well. But I was just wondering. I love looking at the cooks country site, but get frustrated because there are so many that I cant view because Im not a paying member. Oh well. At least I can see some, lol.

So yeah...just curious.

Well poo. That is it then. I added too much dried basil. That would be why its off. Parm would help too I think. Thanks! ...lol way too much basil.

1 tsp dried = 1 tbsp fresh, in general. Maybe your sauce needs a hit of parmesan cheese?

Ok. Just made it. It actually worked fairly well I think. Like I said, I dont know what its like with an actual stone. But pretty dang good!
The second pizza baked a little crisper. I need to remember to let that pan heat up longer. In the recipe itself, something seemed 'off' about the sauce. Not sure what was off, but it needs something I think.
It was: 8 oz tomato sauce
3 tbs tomato paste
2 tbs sugar
2 tbs fresh basil, chopped
2 tsp dried oregano

I didnt have fresh basil, but had dried. I used only 1 tablespoon of that. Maybe thats the off taste? Maybe it was too much dried basil? I dont know what the conversion is from fresh to dry.

That is one thing I've considered actually selling. I've had people try to talk me into selling, Avon, Tupperware, stamping & scrapping stuff, but I wouldn't be good at those, PC I could do!! Good way to get free stuff, too!

Find yourself a PC consultant & earn yourself some free stuff, that's how I got mine!! I use my bar pans all the time for wings. I have a loaf pan that I haven't used much...I should make a loaf of something!

That is a great deal Misty!

I have a large baking stone that I use for bread. Once in awhile I use it for pizza, but DH likes his to be cooked right on the oven rack. It's great for bread though. I also noticed at a Christmas party that the hostess used hers to cook some appetizers on. Things like mini quiches.
